The Frari Basilica

Church - Basilica dei Frari


The Frari's Basilica, temple of prayer and sacred art, is a church of considerable dimensions. As many other Franciscan churches, it was built spacious not for love of splendour, so contrary to the spirit of St. Francis, but in order to welcome the great number of believers wishing to listen to the evangelical message brought alive and real by the simple words and the edifying life of the " Saint of Assisi " and his disciples, made deeper by devotion, humility of heart and zeal of their behaviour.

Tiziano and Bellini are among the greatest artists who contributed to enrich the church with their important masterpieces.

However, we can get you to enjoy only part of its beauty, although we will make our best to offer you the main works exhibited, trying to show up their magnificence.
